My research focuses on the political philosophy that underpins equality jurisprudence in India and United States. I employ critical race theory and epistemic injustice to highlight that prioritisation of individual liberty and formal equality at the cost of substantive equality. Such a prioritisation of values helps the ruling elite to maintain the hegemonic political and moral discourse. This in turn is done to legitimise power structures in the society. My research also looks at the relationship between law and religion, unfair dismissals, and affirmative action jurisprudence.
